Ten of the 12 detainees who escaped from the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) last Wednesday, are still at large.

IDC sources told Guardian Media that they were working closely with law enforcement officials to try and recapture the men who escaped by cutting two chain link fences during the airing period on Wednesday evening.

Two of the escapees — Venezuelan nationals, Charlie Perez Jose and Claudio Flores, were found wandering in a forested area and escorted back into the facility close to midnight last Wednesday.

The escapees who are still at large are: Keisler Manuel Carreno Sucre, Nelson Jose Quijada Mendoza, Alvaro Jose Brito Cequea, Adrian Vincente Gonzales, Gudis Jose Tablante Silver, Henry Ramon Cooper Quiroz, Eleazer Tovar de la Cruz, Gregorio Medina, Luis Angel Cooper Quiroz and Rayan Phillip Bowen (from Grenada).

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of these men is asked to contact the police at 999, 555,911, 800-TIPS or any police station, or text/Whatsapp 482-GARY(4279).
